Training for your ears and brain to make sense of the sound that you are hearing.

Everyone could do this type of therapy.

We love the games and you can challenge yourself with different speakers, like male, female and even Children voices.

This therapy comes within 12 weeks and play as much or as little as you want during these times.  We recommend getting on a game at least 5 times during the week.  You can play from your iphone, ipad, tablet, or computer.

ENHANCES SPEECH DISCRIMINATION1,2

Our team’s NIH-sponsored research showed auditory training enhanced patients’ abilities to distinguish words that sound alike and reduced word confusions.

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine showed in a study with 69 participants who have hearing loss that just 12 hours of auditory training improved word discrimination scores by 14% 1. In a study of 93 participants, 88% believed that they had improved at least one aspect of spoken language comprehension (i.e., words, sentences, general meaning) 4. In a study with open-set sentence recognition, participants improved recognition of words by 5%. The researchers found that benefits of auditory training were maintained 3 months after training ended.8

LEADS TO REDUCED PERCEPTUAL EFFORT DURING LISTENING3

Our team’s NIH sponsored research showed that auditory training reduces the effort required to recognize words, so more cognitive resources can be devoted to processing meaning

Researchers used changes in recall for the three-back position in a modified n-back task as an index of changes in perceptual effort. Eighty-three hearing aid users who completed 12 hours of auditory training on were able to remember slightly more than one additional item in three-back modified n-back task training as compared with before training. Cognitive psychologists consider an improvement on the task as an index of decreased perceptual effort. A follow-up testing session found that participants maintained some gains in a perceptual effort 3 months after the end of training.3

INCREASES LISTENING CONFIDENCE4

In a subjective study of benefit, our 93 study participants indicated that their participation in the auditory training program significantly increased their confidence to engage in everyday conversations.

After completing 12 hours of auditory training, 93 participants were asked how much the training had improved their listening confidence. They responded on a Likert scale of 1 (very little) to 7 (very much). Participants rated their increase in confidence as approximately 4, which indicates significant improvement. Their rating of how much they enjoyed playing the games was 5.5

ENHANCES THE HEARING WELLNESS EXPERIENCE4,5

The program gave patients a sense of empowerment over hearing loss, a high degree of satisfaction because of ongoing professional contact, and reduced listening challenges that they most wanted to address.

When asked what they liked best about a hearing wellness program that included twice-weekly contact with a hearing healthcare provider and auditory training, the three top responses were the auditory training games (34% of the responses), the sense of helping one’s self (25%), and regular contact with a hearing healthcare provider (19%),4

Amptify is supported by the principles of second-language learning and cognitive psychology

Principles of second-language learning and cognitive psychology have established the efficacy of acoustically varied presentation formats and meaning-based stimuli.6
